Noticed that my Windows 7 PeNetwork had some problems.
So I used the Windows 10 PeNetwork v49 and added the windows 7
plugin to v49.  Nothing special, but thought it might be easier to
just use one plugin for all. I have noticed that Windows 10 Pe is
seemless finding my wireless connection. Windows 8 Pe is a  little
slower, but solid connection everytime.  This is not my plugin but
hopefully this helps.      :scooter:

PENetwork in Win7PESE is now exactly the same plugin as the other projects.
For that I cut out the plugin in 2, with a new Win7PESE Network plugin now.
It was waiting for a long time but I was lazy to do it.
It's cleaner and it will be easier now for next updates  :great:

Because I'm working on PENM (GUI stuff, Wifi things in/from tray, handling for better connection detection, etc.) I still wanted to know what modus you would prefer for the IP configuration GUI?
In the past there were some misunderstandings how to handle with the 'modern' interface (text on buttons shows the current mode, clicking on it changes to the other mode).
Therefore I created an 'additional classic' interface, the modern is still available/default.
So let me known your opinion.
This is the classic IP mode:

This is the modern IP mode:

Hello,
after a long time I decided to release the version 0.59.Beta 6 of PENM because I want to try some other things out (resizable GUI, IPv6, etc.):  :beta:
- Fixed: Wrong disabled color of disabled .../X-Buttons
- Fixed: Better detection of newer Windows 10 versions
- Fixed: Minimizing main program leads to unchecking of tray menu item to show network activity
- Changed: Detection of running shell
- Changed: Workaround for network adapter descriptions like "XYZ a|b|g|n" -> "XYZ a/b/g/n"
- Changed: GUI IP settings classic design (radiobuttons)
- Changed: Override internal WM_SETCURSOR to remove flickering in input controls
- Changed: Wifi connection dialog, now it's possible to connect to hidden networks, not connectable networks (maybe policy) are marked
- Added: Detection of connected network device, wait condition configurable: ini/HKCU-reg-parameters: WaitConnect (Default=No) / WaitConnectTime (Default=120sec)
- Added: Simple WiFi tray connection window (Left Button Click if WiFi adapter was detected)
- Added: Possibility to keep PENM icon in tray whole time via ini/HKCU-reg-parameter: ShowTrayAlways (Default=No)

At the moment you can download it from:
http://penetwork.bplaced.net
or
http://sourceforge.net/projects/penetwork

Just let me know about problems and so on...

Thanks and greets  :smile:

Hi
I just tried the new version and especially the new configuration:
Quote
- Added: Simple WiFi tray connection window (Left Button Click if WiFi adapter was detected)
Thank you very much for adding it.

It has been perfect. Just one question, could you add transparency to the new menu as it happens in windows 10? I would love to.

Greetings and congratulations for continuing to add new features.  :cool:

Actually I am having issues with the new Wifi left click menu.  The menu itself works perfectly, it opens and displays networks correctly, and I can disconnect from a network with the disconnect button, but when I click connect on an open network (no password) it does not connect it just sits there - If you double click the network on the list it will connect fine but the connect button seems to not be working correctly.

Also the network status lights in taskbar do not work correctly, one of the lights stays on solid even when not connected to anything if a wifi card is present.

Hope this helps to make it better and that they are easy fixes, thanks for everything you've done for this community!  :thumbsup:

Thanks to bob  :smile:
Just forgot to change a column number because of some changes of the WiFi tray.

I published a new version 0.59.Beta 7 of PENM:
- Fixed: Connect button in WiFi tray window does not work

@bob: thank you for infos: I will check the icon problem the next days.

@teik: there are 3 entries you can make in your PENetwork.ini file to the color scheme you are using:
ClrTrayBk = background of the 2 tray gui's
ClrTrayTxt = text color
ClrTrayTrans = transparency level (0...255=default)

Thanks again for testing
Holger

Found the problem: I added a new icon for this state: no network device is connected but I had wrong number for the icon resource (245 instead of 255).
I will rebuild it tomorrow...in the case there are some other new things you find out  :wink:

Thank you very much for adding the transparent effect. I love the Aero effect that has Windows 10 and gives a more modern touch to the tool.

A small paragraph: maybe it's my idea, before to import profiles in xml of wifi networks I looked in the windows \ system32 folder Now it appears to me that it searches directly on the desktop is like this or is some kind of configuration that I have done in a way incorrect?

Greetings and thanks for the great support you are giving. Tomorrow when you resubas the new version I download it to try.

Holger,


If I could make a suggestion.. If you are adding icons is it at all possible to add -(Inactive Wifi Icon)- and -(Active Wifi-Icon (with or without signal strength?))- for taskbar if wireless is active and no wired connection detected? 

I feel this is the best timing to ask since you are actively updating icons for release. I would normally never bother you with any request because PENetwork is amazing, without it we would all be without network. Even though it is the primary use for networking for PE, at one point early on for me, I tried to get normal Win10 Network Flyout to work instead of PENetwork. ---> http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=2225.0

The reason, was that it was difficult to understand how to connect to wifi for non PE user for first couple of uses.

 :lol: But today(yesterday) you changed all that with release of B6/7  :grin:

If you use wireless icons for network when the new flyout is active, and wired network icons when wired network active, PENetwork will behave exactly like normal windows networking tray icon and new users will find it the same as regular windows network controls. :thumbsup:

Only a suggestion, I hate to even ask because I don't want to seem ungrateful, the release in its current state is a huge gift to the community and its something I am super excited to be able to use. Either way your work is amazing. Maybe if not now, possibly in the future... I couldn't think of a better time to ask though

@teik: there was no change from beta 4 to beta 6 so it should be as expected.
Will do some tests.

@bob: at the moment I do not plan any changes to this, I created the icons because I didn't like the default Windows behavior.
There is no activity display in some way anymore.
Some month ago I had the idea to 'rebuild' the behavior like in XP.
So 1 icon for 1 device.
Just let me think of it how to make it possible and usable the right way.


No release planed for today because the wrong icon problem is just a small one.
Will do some tests the next weeks during the holidays/vacation and after that I will publish a new beta or this as finale release 0.59.

Thanks so far and greets  :smile:

Holger,

     Smart to wait for release until further testing.  Sorry this took so long....

New WiFi Flyout allows to select network, then enter password, then when ok button is clicked it only dismisses password prompt but does not connect. (But it connects to open networks fine.) - If connect button is pressed after password is entered and window dismissed, password prompt re-appears.

If you want, before release, we will test here..

Also:

ps:
Keep an eye on other topic:
http://TheOven.org/index.php?topic=2335.0

The above issue has been resolved.  It was not a PENetwork error..

Hello Holger,
I have tried the transparent function in the new version and the truth is that the concept is fine, but it is difficult to see. Could one put on the one hand the background of the transparent box alone and the rest of the frames and letters that were not altered? to make it easier to see wifis networks. So that the tone of the text could be maintained in normal.
The transparency code is a little weird, since it comes out at: 0x00019F and stays at a transparency of 30%.
Could you keep an eye on how to make this new transparent window?
However, as I read before, enjoy the current vacations and the family that is needed in these dates also some rest.
Greetings and encourage you to follow the project forward.  :thumbsup:

@bob: one thing is to check "Automatically..."
If not then only a WiFi profile is created.
With next version the checkbox is checked by default.

@teik: I find some possibility to use 2 windows, 1 as the background and 1 as a transparent without text and so on like the attached.

I found some other strange things that I have to check (Wifi service buttons are 'moved' to the tray wifi connection window and sometimes the info window popups when starting the program the first time...)

I also did some tests with new icons, also attached another idea (if WiFi adapter is detected): with this icon you can see a little bit the signal strenght (4 states) and the outgoing and ingoing data (Win7 icons, for Win10 they will be white again).
But I will try out some more...

So long and greets :)
Holger
